God Is Love

You may ask yourself this question about this book:  “How come this love story is in the Bible?  The word ‘God’ is never used!”  It’s very simple: God is love (1 John 4:8)  The beautiful poetry and tender feelings of love between the young man and woman express the feelings of the way God loves us, and how our soul, our deepest self, has been created to love God with wonderful feelings of love;.

The expressions of love in this book give you a sense of how wonderful is the love of a couple for one another.  You’ll notice in today’s passage how much this love helps the couple appreciate the beauties of nature when they are shared. 

When a loved-one passes to heaven, the bond of love between them never ceases. Love is stronger than death.
